Die Arbeit als Dienstmädchen stellte im Europa des 19. Jahrhunderts die weitverbreitetste Erwerbs­tätigkeit von Frauen dar. Oft erwies sie sich als die einzige Möglichkeit, trotz mangelnder Schulbildung und fehlender beruflicher Qualifikationen einen Lebensunterhalt zu bestreiten. In der Regel bewarben sich junge Mädchen, die vor der Gründung eines eigenen Haushalts Geld verdienen wollten. Aber auch ältere Frauen, die unverheiratet blieben, waren teils ihr Leben lang auf den Beruf als Dienstbotin angewiesen. In den jüdischen Bürgerhaushalten der Niederlande, insbesondere in den zu dieser Zeit blühenden jüdischen Gemeinden in Amsterdam und anderen Großstädten, sah dies nicht anders aus. Auch dort putzten, kochten und stickten Dienstmädchen. Sie nahmen sich der Kindererziehung an und interagierten mit Kolleg­Innen und ArbeitgeberInnen. Vor allem wegen eines Mangels an schriftlichen Quellen ist bisher jedoch wenig über dieses Kapitel jüdischer und weiblicher Erwerbsgeschichte bekannt. Die vorliegende Studie wirft mit Hilfe von Stellenanzeigen für und von jüdischen Dienstmädchen Licht auf diese Berufsgruppe in den Jahren zwischen 1894 und 1925. Es wird ein Korpus von 540 Inseraten aus der vielgelesenen niederländischen Wochenzeitung Nieuw Israelietisch Weekblad diskursanalytisch untersucht, was neue Erkenntnisse über Leben und Arbeit der Dienstbotinnen zu Tage fördert. Die Anzeigen thematisieren sowohl das gesellschaftliche Ansehen der Frauen, ihre Aufgaben, Qualifikationen und finanziellen Ansprüche sowie ihre Religiosität. Durch einen Vergleich von Anzeigen aus drei Jahrzehnten kann die Studie aufzeigen, wie sich Einstellungen gegenüber dem Dienstmädchenberuf veränderten und sowohl Angestellte als auch ArbeitgeberInnen im Laufe der Zeit neue Maßstäbe an die häusliche Arbeit anlegten.

This seventh volume of The Cambridge History of Judaism provides an authoritative and detailed overview of early modern Jewish history, from 1500 to 1815. The essays, written by an international team of scholars, situate the Jewish experience in relation to the multiple political, intellectual and cultural currents of the period. They also explore and problematize the 'modernization' of world Jewry over this period from a global perspective, covering Jews in the Islamic world and in the Americas, as well as in Europe, with many chapters straddling the conventional lines of division between Sephardic, Ashkenazic, and Mizrahi history. The most up-to-date, comprehensive, and authoritative work in this field currently available, this volume will serve as an essential reference tool and ideal point of entry for advanced students and scholars of early modern Jewish history.

The two decades since the last authoritative general history of Dutch Jews was published have seen such substantial developments in historical understanding that new assessment has become an imperative. This volume offers an indispensable survey from a contemporary viewpoint that reflects the new preoccupations of European historiography and allows the history of Dutch Jewry to be more integrated with that of other European Jewish histories. Historians from both older and newer generations shed significant light on all eras, providing fresh detail that reflects changed emphases and perspectives. In addition to such traditional subjects as the Jewish community’s relationship with the wider society and its internal structure, its leaders, and its international affiliations, new topics explored include the socio-economic aspects of Dutch Jewish life seen in the context of the integration of minorities more widely; a reassessment of the Holocaust years and consideration of the place of Holocaust memorialization in community life; and the impact of multiculturalist currents on Jews and Jewish politics. Memory studies, diaspora studies, postcolonial studies, and digital humanities all play their part in providing the fullest possible picture. This wide-ranging scholarship is complemented by a generous plate section with eighty fully captioned colour illustrations.

In the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries a small but conspicuous fringe of the Jewish population became the world’s most resolute, intellectually driven, and philosophical revolutionaries, among them the pre-Marxist Karl Marx. Yet the roots of their alienation from existing society and determination to change it extend back to the very heart of the Enlightenment, when Spinoza and other philosophers living in a rigid, hierarchical society colored by a deeply hostile theology first developed a modern revolutionary consciousness. Leading intellectual historian Jonathan Israel shows how the radical ideas in the early Marx’s writings were influenced by this legacy, which, he argues, must be understood as part of the Radical Enlightenment. He traces the rise of a Jewish revolutionary tendency demanding social equality and universal human rights throughout the Western world. Israel considers how these writers understood Jewish marginalization and ghettoization and the edifice of superstition, prejudice, and ignorance that sustained them. He investigates how the quest for Jewish emancipation led these thinkers to formulate sweeping theories of social and legal reform that paved the way for revolutionary actions that helped change the world from 1789 onward—but hardly as they intended.

The Netherlands is known among foreigners today for its cheese and its windmills, its Golden Age paintings and its experimentation in social policies such as cannabis and euthanasia. Yet the historical background for any of these quintessentially Dutch achievements is often unfamiliar to outsiders. This concise history offers an overview of this surprisingly little-known but fascinating country. Beginning with the first humanoid settlers, the book follows the most important contours of Dutch history, from Roman times through to the Habsburgs, the Dutch Republic and the Golden Age. The author, a modernist, pays particularly close attention to recent developments, including the signature features of contemporary Dutch society. In addition to being a political history, this overview also gives systematic attention to social and economic developments, as well as in religion, the arts and the Dutch struggle against the water. The Dutch Caribbean is also included in the narrative.
